repost from tumblr, but I thought it would be a good idea to put this up here as well.

so here we go! (thank god I have a sub)

BAD


the obvious robe-style is just sad





THIS ONE HERE FUCKING KILLS ME



GOOD 


note the silhouette


kimono are NOT supposed to accent your curves. A kind of barrel shape is ideal


also, please look up the different colors that different types of kimono will have. Don't go all crazy with prints, simplicity is often important.


and these are just a few examples :D












and I didn't source the pixiv ones since if you add this one to your bookmarks they'll appear immediatly

Very nice references, thanks a billion! Also, they are way harder to draw than I had envisioned. :0

Great work! The Kimono shows beauty NOT sexiness.
